Amal School, Not For Profit Harbanspura, Lahore.
This is a non-profit school. A custom built campus, built in 2005, by the sponsorship of Mr. Salman Chima provides an ideal learning environment. A nominal fee is charged but many deserving children are sponsored by donations. An evening shift has also been started, which is free. However, a ‘dignity fee’ is charged at Rs 30 per month, which is utilized in the purchase of books and stationery in the primary school.
The morning school now has a strength of 350 children from play group to class 10. The evening shift has 25 children from class 1 to class 3. These are less privileged children who cannot cope with the learning but after completing the Umeed Enrichment Program they are adjusted in the morning section. The senior classes have very innovative teaching techniques and technology is also incorporated at all learning levels
The Principal, Mrs Shagufta Abbas recently retired. Her international teaching experience, holding a Masters degree in Social Work, was providing a vision and direction to the school, with her leadership skills. Now Mrs Zahida Rana has adopted the role with great zeal and responsibility.”
